I was upset at the delay's that dell had sent me. When I contacted customer service they offered me free next day shipping. Of course it was shipped wrong so when I contacted them again they offered me $40 off for my troubles. Dell may not have it figured out but at least they will try to work with you. Still waiting for the computer but at least they offered me something.
Well, my order got delayed to the 27. Should I be worried?
XPS 8500 has much more expansion capability and has all the audio and video outputs to function as a HTPC, also has bluetooth as well. Have never seen anyone comment on actually putting a fanless or high efficiency fan regulated power supply that would make it quieter, but that is possible as well.
On the X51 the ability to upgrade power supply and graphics cards is more limited due to the size of the SFF case. Form factor is nice, but does limit you. It's made more for gamers but does have all the audio and video outputs necessary for it to function as a HTPC. Lot more information here:
thanks, i just got my 8500 today, installed the 660ti and everything is great. i have one question though. the fan that faces out the back of the case isn't moving at full speed like the others. it's only slightly twitching. is this because it only spins up when the heat increases or is it faulty?
edIt; nevermind. i just shut it down/restarted for the first time and it seemed to fix it. strange.
